6 inch narmada river stone lingam.
- Found only in the Narmada River in India, Lingams (also called Shiva Lingams or Bana Lingams) are a variety of cryptocrystalline quartz that is oval in shape and contains earthy hues, usually two-toned. In ancient Sanskrit, Shiva Lingam means a sign or symbol. These Lingams are gathered once a year in a special ceremony and then polished by hand.
- Lingam is symbolic of the Divine Creative Manifestation. The Lingam shape is representative of the power of Shiva, the Lord of Creation, and the masculine creative energy. The markings, also known as the yoni, symbolize the feminine energy, the seed which is fertilized to manifest the creative power in the dance of the cosmos. Geologists theorize that the iron oxide, of which the yoni is composed, was impregnated in the river bed millions of years ago by a meteorite.

They are a very rare and powerful stone collected once a year exclusively from the Narmada River in Onkar, Mandhata, one of India’s seven sacred holy sites. They are formed by from crypto-crystalline quartz, which legends say was implanted in the riverbed by a meteorite millions of years ago.
- Lingams are representations of the Lord Shiva, and the shape embodies pure masculine energy, dynamic expression and knowledge. These are perfect stones for meditation, healing and protection. Shiva Lingams are said to contain the loftiest vibrations of all stones on Earth. Their vibrational energy will purify your temple or home.
